Story: Francis “Confidential” Henshall is hungry for work, literally. The erstwhile skiffle musician can’t think of anything but food as he wanders the streets of Brighton, England in 1963.

Soon, Roscoe and Francis are strong-arming Charlie “The Duck” Clench, another small-time hood.
So, that happened. After some 17 years of being louse-free, last week, I got the call: Punch has head lice. Now, before you recoil in disgust—well, after you've finished recoiling in disgust, I feel I need to clarify. Having lice is not a reflection of one's general hygiene.

Much like us, it seems lice like a clean living space. Why they would choose to reside on the head of a 13-year-old boy who showers only at gunpoint only confounds me more. Regardless, a home they did indeed find.

With all this buzz, the parking lot can fill up fast. But don’t worry about nabbing a space—complimentary valet service is available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays.
